VSI 7.4 – PowerMax support

So I believe this is our last VMware integration product to be certified with PowerMax. VSI 7.4 is still based on the vSphere Web Client, though the HTML 5 client is coming along - Q3 I'd guess at this point though don't quote me. As I mentioned before, the continuation of the Web Client version... Continue Reading →

ESA 4.6 – PowerMax

So it's been less than 2 months since our last ESA release but we have another! Truth be told we had to wait to release ESA 4.5 because VMware delayed vROps 6.7 and we had already built it on that software. The new release, Dell EMC ESA 4.6, which also runs on vROps 6.7 of... Continue Reading →

You can locate it under the new name Dell EMC VMAX and PowerMax Content Pack in the VMware Solutions Exchange: or online within your own Log Insight installation: The description...

VSI 7.3.3 with vSphere 6.7 support

Only 3 days ago I wrote about VMware's new vSphere 6.7 release and cautioned that the current VSI release did not support it but a release was on the way...and today it has arrived. VSI 7.3.3. is now available for download. Just a couple things to know about this release. First, the release will supplant... Continue Reading →

vSphere 6.7 & SRM 8.1

Today VMware has posted the newest release of their flagship vSphere product, 6.7. In addition they have also dropped Site Recovery Manager (SRM) 8.1. A new vSphere release always means lots of new features, and I'd be a fool to try to enumerate them seeing as there is a document for that. I'll mention a... Continue Reading →

vSphere 6.7 automated UNMAP enhancements

Continuing from vSphere 6.7 post... So in vSphere 6.5 VMware introduced automated UNMAP for datastores. In so doing they offered users two option: on (default) or off. Rather than a checkbox, however, VMware has what appears to be a scale which would allow the user to decide how aggressive UNMAP should be. It didn't work... Continue Reading →

Dell EMC ESA 4.5

Dell EMC ESA 4.5 is now available for download here. The first thing you'll notice is there has been a name change. Although Dell bought EMC years ago at this point, name changes can take time as there are all sorts of legal hoops to jump through as well as individual country requirements. The good...

VSI 7.3

Happy New Year everyone. It's been a bit since I've posted but we do have a new VSI release to talk about. This one comes late as we do normally release quarterly, but seeing as it wasn't expected at all, I suppose a month late isn't bad. So last time I wrote about VSI, I mentioned 7.2 was most...
